seriously cereus

Oh I finally found the secret to losing weight now..

It's called 'Bacillus cereus'.

Just cook your rice and leave it outside in the kitchen for 2 days, then cook it for dinner afterwards. Perfect incubation habitat for multiplying, toxins-releasing bacillus.

No need for any laxatives or appetite suppressant pills.

Bacillus cereus works wonder for your guts. And appetite.

Who says losing weight was hard? :P

(okay I was a little dumb to have thought this freaking cold weather could refrigerate my rice out of the fridge)


Anyway wanted to post a 'proper', 'obligatory' New Year post but somehow just couldn't find the time at the moment (in between sitting on the toilet bowl or sleeping in bed all weekend). Starting my second week in the Breast Ward tomorrow, which is very unexciting to say the least.

Another 2 case discussions, 2 mini-CEX, 1 observed practical procedure, 1 Cleanliness Champions module (oh save my soul), and a Ward Simulation Exercise this month. I had been all geared up for the new year, but right now I just can't be bothered.

I need some motivation.

NOT Bacillus cereus.

2010 - turning point in life?

At times, life seems to pass by at a frighteningly fast speed.

On our way back from London city to Luton airport by bus now. Within hours, the five of us - ben, Jackie, mus, cheemei, me - will find ourselves shivering together in the cold of Edinburgh again.

The past 2 days in London must have been the best time I've had in a very long time, felt like forever. Meeting our 3 friends from different parts of the world after so long, it's like nothing has changed. The joking around, the poking fun at each other. Have we really spent any time apart? (:

Last night we talked bout the future. How UK did not felt like home, probably never will. For me, this is as close to home I could feel. With my friends. They are the only place I ever felt I belong. The lot of us in UK were lucky, a big part of the 'family' came here. I was lucky.

However not many of us would still be here in a few years I guess. Even in Dundee only 3 of us chose to stay in Dundee for our foundation years. I admit I'm afraid of graduating, to be in charge of real patients with my seemingly limited knowledge. Yet, for me a future without these friends is even more scary. Now when I look to the future, when we all have graduated and started working, when those who wants to go back has gone back, I'm not sure what there will be to look forward to. These occassional 'family' outings are my only source of strength to maintain my sanity.

Cherish every moment I guess. Ah, we're all growing up, growing old too fast. 6 months to graduation, hopefully.
